[Japan after Quake] Headline Round-up : July 9 – July 15



This is a weekly headline round-up of the posts titled [Japan after Quake] on our Facebook page.


[July 12] Fishermen here boarded their ships and headed out to sea — not to catch fish, but disaster debris.


On July 11, Yabuki and his fellow fishermen began the day by pouring sake into the sea and taking a moment of silence to mourn those who perished in the disasters. Then they headed out to sea to collect the still vast amount of debris dispersed in the ocean.


[July 16] East Japan Railway Co. (JR East) will implement full-fledged measures to reduce electricity consumption ahead of an expected power shortfall this summer, with other railway companies making similar power-saving efforts.


 JR East plans to employ such technologies as storing regenerative power produced when trains brake and solar power to minimize consumption of conventional power.


This is JAPAN Style!
